Every time I am in your presence
I silently observe the inner depths of your fears
As love makes you act beyond yourself
And hope is what keeps you sane
When I hear the silence in your creaking voice
There’s an agonizing screech of desperation
Seeking for constant admiration
To fill the forever hollowness you call love
And every time I am in your presence
I travel the depths of your soul,
My body trembles at the thought of your tears
That love has caused you all these years.
For all you want is the cure to constant loneliness,
Desperation begins and insecurity hits,
And now you have lost the only bit of hope you had
In the never-ending search for the one to fill your emptiness.
And every time I am in your presence,
I feel the desire to be with you.
I have never felt the desire to love someone.
As much as I’ve always wanted to love you.
For I am as broken as you are,
With the constant need to be loved,
Yet all I want to be
Is the smile behind your sorrows
